The anticipation is building for the start of the Golden State Warriors' regular season when they travel to Phoenix to take on the Suns Wednesday night. With that anticipation comes curiosity as well as the Warriors' starting five has yet to be revealed.

The fellas over at Golden State of Mind wrote Tuesday that point guard Stephen Curry and center Andrew Bogut both practiced on Monday for the first time all training camp. What's still unclear is whether either will play, though Curry's comments after practice made it sound like he's playing.

What is clear is the Warriors' starting small forward position, which had been a question mark all training camp long. Jackson announced Monday that rookie Harrison Barnes will start for Warriors over Brandon Rush, who Jackson said would spell both Barnes and starting shooting guard Klay Thompson.

The Warriors and Suns tip off from US Airways Arena at 7:00 p.m. PT.
